A new network rolls out today, and in honor of the occasion, the pilot episode of the long-running TV show “Let’s Make a Deal” will make its way to prime time for the first time ever.

The new outlet is FremantleMedia North America’s digital multicast network BUZZR. The network will air the “Let’s Make a Deal” pilot, hosted by Monty Hall and originally taped in 1963, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, with an encore three hours later.

“Serving as a historic cache of the era, viewers will watch as contestants win and lose prizes for the first time on the ‘Let’s Make a Deal’ stage, including a ‘luxurious’ raccoon coat, a 1963 Pontiac Tempest convertible, a toaster oven worth a whopping $29.95, and four live lambs!,” the company said in its announcement.

The program will also feature the show’s current host, Wayne Brady, swapping stories with Hall during a look back at the history of “Let’s Make a Deal.”

The game-focused network will also be featuring vintage episodes of “Family Feud,” “What’s My Line,” “To Tell the Truth” and other classic game shows.
